Michael Lacey is a mathematician from the United States. He earned his Ph.D. in 1987 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His specialty within the field of mathematics is in the probability of Banach spaces.
His Ph.D. thesis involved solving a math problem for the law of the iterated logarithm for empirical characteristic functions. During his professional career he has also performed work related to harmonic analysis, probability, and ergodic theory.
After earning his Ph.D. Michael Lacey earned a position at Louisiana State University as well as the University of North Carolina At Chapel Hill. Along with one of his colleagues, Walter Phillip, Lacey provided a proof of the central limit theorem.
He also worked at Indiana University for seven years during which time he earned a Postdoctoral Fellowship given to him by the National Science Foundation. His fellowship was focused on bilinear Hilbert transform.
Lacey and another colleague, Christoph Thiele, solved this problem in 1996 and they were both awarded the Salem Prize. Learn more about Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey and https://twitter.com/Michael_Lacey1
